Champion Oil, a major player in development and manufacturing of performance lubricants, this last weekend showcased Sam Hafertepe, Jr., the reigning Lucas Oil ASCS National Champion went a perfect 2 for 2 at the 44th annual Devil’s Bowl Spring Nationals. Running in the Hwy. 79 Collision/Keith Dobbs Motorsports/Champion Oil No. 15h.
Clinton, MO -- (ReleaseWire) -- 03/22/2017 --Sam Hafertepe was able to build sizable leads on the competition throughout the race weekend. Following up Hafertepe' runs both nights were Justin Henderson in the BDS Motorsports/NGK Spark Plugs/Champion Oil No. 1 and Johnny Herrera in the Mesilla Valley Transportation/Champion Oil No. 45x.
Hafertepe started slow in the second night's race until around the halfway point when he was able to gain some momentum. "We were able to follow John Carney by (Justin) Henderson, and our car got better and better as the race went on," says Sam. "It was still heavy, but it was a lot wider than Saturday. We had a long green flag run there and we got into traffic. Johnny (Herrera) had been running the bottom of one and two and he was making it work a lot better than some other guys were."
Keeping the Mesilla Valley Transportation/Champion Oil No. 45x at bay on a late restart, Johnny Herrera was left to contend with the BDS Motorsports/NGK Spark Plugs/Champion Oil No. 1 of Justin Henderson who grabbed away second on Lap 28, but there was no catching Hafertepe as the Texas native raced the win by 3.337 seconds. Justin Henderson and Johnny Herrera would take the 2nd and 3rd positions both nights.
